A Cool Review for Shine in the Guardian

Shine by Candy Gourlay
'A precious and important novel that also explores exile from neighbours, family and country. The book is about reinvention and the faces we present to the world, whether it be in person, on a postcard or on the internet, all wrapped up in an exciting and perfectly paced story with a disturbing and dramatic climax.'
Philip Ardagh, The Guardian

Origami Fan Mail

So I read somewhere that you've got to make sure you blog at least once a week so everybody knows you're alive.  I just want you all to know that I am working hard on my new book and am very much alive.

In one of my blog posts last month, I received the following letter from a student at Ellis Guilford School:

 Do you still have that origami bird and penguin I gave you?


I thought this would be a good time to show them off!


And how about this great drawing of Bernardo - complete with his hairy legs!
